There isn't a download link! I'm sure it used to be there :-/

Here's what I see:

Safari 5 is available via Apple's KB here.

But according to 9to5mac, it seems that have Apple decided to stop producing Safari for Windows, so Safari 5 is all that's likely to be available moving forward (for reference, Safari 10 has just been announced for OSX).

Weird! I guess it has something to do with v6 coming out. Thanks! – Django Reinhardt Oct 18 '12 at 16:26

There is no link to Safari for Windows because Apple stopped making it. If you want a copy of Safari for Windows you have to download the installer somewhere, or retrieve it from your backup.

Update: This link still works: SafariSetup.exe

BAD IDEA to install this old thing; it's riddled with security holes, and does not support modern web site SSL protection, so more and more sites will not even load at all in it anymore. – cnd Mar 31 at 16:49
@cnd The only reason any of us are downloading this stupid is browser is so that we can support our clients. – mpen Jun 9 at 1:34

Like the others have said, Apple has ceased development for it. The latest Windows version is 5.1.7 and you can find it in several places including FileHippo (

It will give you warnings galore, that its not the latest most secure browser, but if you must run it for some reason - there it is.
